Two of Elephanatics’ directors – Tessa Vanderkop and Leanne Fogarty – will be dressing in full elephant costume and plunging into the icy waters of English Bay on January 1! Why? To rescue an abused tourism elephant in Thailand and retire her to the Elephant Nature Park.
Please sponsor Leanne or Tessa with a donation (no amount is too small) here or here. Every cent you donate will go directly towards saving the elephant.
Come cheer us on at:
